Great playing from Jerry
Not the best quality, but from a handheld mic, there's good enough detail to enjoy the show. Jerry's really on fire, especially on the earlier tunes in the set, where his leads take a lot of shape based on his pedal steel playing, lots of nice double bends. Great & unique sounds on some of the chestnuts!

the main ten (playin' in the band) makes an appearance in the Dark Star on 4-11, four days earlier. the very 1st one is in the 6/19/68 show, but its now confirmed that that show was actually performed on 2/19/69, so the first 'main ten' was indeed not until 1969. this DS is significantly better than 4/11 however, perhaps one of the finest of the year!
great, great show btw, do not pass this up b/c of aud sound!!

Great show & a good listen despite really bad sound
I HAVE to give it four despite the sound quality, that's how good the show is. With better sound it would be like a six.

The Music Box on 1969-04-15
I visited the Music Box many times prior to its being demolished in 1980. Built as a dance hall, it had very good acoustics. Its small stage was elevated about 2' from the main floor, with no barriers between the crowd and the band. The main floor held about 300 people shoulder-to-shoulder. There was a 2nd floor horseshoe-shaped balcony where beer was sold during performances. Ah, the good old days.
The crowd always got into the music because the crowd was virtually on stage with the musicians, and it shows in this recording. The band seems a bit fridgid for the first 2 songs, then the place heats up quickly. A good recording of a strong performance. This show doesn't make the rounds too much so probably not many have heard it.

Great recording for the time. Check out the powerful Other One.
